I love FL Studio. And used it for about 15 years. The more i use it, the more functions i learn in it, and how to change every single instruments
I have not performed live. In front of an audience will be difficult because i have some kind of performance anxiety
I got inspiration from music on youtube. Also some songs from this site. Then from movies and computer games i can get ideas how to make music. Today I love most to make music where it builds more and more up (Uplifting). Many of my songs fade out, that I like that kind of ending a song.
First i used ejay music programs. A little time with magik music maker. But today its only FL Studio. I decide to import all different instruments and rhythms from the ejay program to FL Studio, so I also have that options together with instruments in FL Studio... As instruments i like playing keyboard / piano. But most i like to make it in a music program.
I have never published my own music to earn money. But I think a lots of it. But I think it can maybe be too difficult. I heard i need to pay lots of money for disc etc where my music will be created on. And I did not earn so much, and there is no guarantee to earn the money back and preferably extra money.
